With a penchant for effortless dressing and sultry styles, Sarah Lahbati is the girl to look to for summer fashion inspiration. Her outfits range from frilly romanticism to clean sophistication, while at the same time holding a sense of spirited and sexy edge. It’s in the way she plays with pops of colors, textured touches, and subtle flashes of skin. For her, every outfit needs to have a little bit of fun (and we’re all for it). We took a trip down the actress’ Instagram to get inspiration for #OOTDs.
Here are 8 summer-ready outfits we’re totally copying from Sarah Lahabati:
1. Cropped Top + White Jeans
The line between top and bra gets blurred during the summertime when we welcome more navel-bearing pieces into our wardrobes. Sarah shows us how to wear them through this date night look by matching her crop top with a pair of fresh white jeans. The high-waist silhouette makes up for the lack of coverage, and when paired with a simple heeled sandal, it makes for a stylishly put-together look.
2. Puff-Sleeved Top + Denim Cutoffs
Sarah gives a romantic blouse the cool-girl treatment with a pair of denim cutoffs. With all its feminine details—undone ribbons, voluminous sleeves, delicate ruffles—the frayed shorts make for an effortless contrast. Never one to skip fun accessories, she adds in a mint green purse and a baroque pearl necklace. We’re definitely copying this look for the next casual brunch with the girls.
3. Bodysuit + Linen Trousers
Sarah shows us how to play up something as simple as a black bodysuit and white pant pairing. For this grayscale summer look, she adds in a pair of chunky sandals. They’re bright, colorful, and patterned, adding in that playfulness that’s a signature to Sarah’s style. The next time you find yourself in a black-and-white ensemble, you know what shoes to reach for!
4. White Dress + Canvas Sandals + Woven Bag
Now this is how to style a summer LWD. Sarah chose to match her clean white dress with a little texture—a pair of canvas sandals, beaded anklets, and a frayed-edge woven bag that adds interest, dimension, and a whole lot of summertime feels. It’s a good reminder for us to use our simpler pieces as an opportunity for playful styling.
5. White Top + White Trousers + White Sneakers
There’s nothing that feels as fresh as an all-white look. Sarah shows us how to do it with this squeaky clean ensemble: a delicate tie-front top, tapered trousers, and minimalist-chic sneakers. It’s a summertime outfit that feels comfortable enough to hop around the city in—a definite peg for a hot-weather errand day.
6. Eyelet Dress + Clear Heels
Never one to shy away from super romantic frocks, Sarah stuns in a voluminous eyelet dress. With all that’s going on—high-volume sleeves, full skirt, and super textured textile— she chose to keep the rest simple with a pair of clear heels. For our next daytime summer soiree, we’re looking to this for inspiration.
7. Slip Dress + Leather Sandals
A slip dress is the piece to have in your closet all year round because it seamlessly transitions through seasons. Sarah shows us how to style it this summer with a no-nonsense pair of sandals and coastal-style accessories (see the woven bag and seashell necklace). Throw on your favorite pair of sunnies as the final touch, and you’re good to go!
8. Blazer and Skirt Set + Nude Bodysuit
Give the no-fail blazer set combination the summertime treatment with a poppy bright color. Sarah shows us how it’s done with this vibrant orange ensemble which she aptly pairs with a nude bodysuit and white clutch. We’re definitely stealing this look for our next night out.
